Sales & Dealer Area / Re: FestoolRecon.com coming VERY soon (US)

Being Canadian I'm not a happy camper. Why are we being left out. I thought North America included Canada. It does for your product launches and even the roadshow.

I feel your pain brother but Festool USA is hosting the sale.  Which stops at the border.

Now as to how you should feel about the double standard is open for discussion.

@ear3  Edward, so you're going Woodright on us with the frame saw?  I was reading this thread at the same time The Woodwright's Shop was on and Roy was busy resawing some pine with the same kind of saw.  What a coincidence!

The cabinet looks great and it's hard to believe it came from the scrap pile.  I do agree that it looks a bit rustic with all the defects of the reclaimed wood, but they add some interest. 

I really like how you've been incorporating a mix of hand tools in your repertoire.  How long did it take to do the overall build?

Thanks for sharing!

Mike A.

10meter combined hose/plug it - was going to use it outside to sand old paint with the RAS115 (but that model still hasn't been updated to have a round dust port or plug it cord...)
Carvex accessory kit
MFS routing system
HKC Cordless Saw - no power, completely bogged down in pressure treated for anything past 90 degree end cuts
Vecturo (wish there was a cordless model)
MFT tables - too small to be useful and no storage space under for all the small tools/junk that accumulates while working

"Are the shelves solid cherry or cherry ply?"

They are cherry plywood.

Thanks...that’s what I thought because the edges are so crisp.

"Nice job!  Is the high back for cosmetics or do you store items on the backside?"

Mainly because I liked the looks of Peter Parfitt's from the New Brit workshop.   An added benefit was keeping the small amount of dust that is not collected from going behind the saw.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: CT26E flood damage
« Last post by woodnerd on Yesterday at 09:04 PM »
Well, I'm happy to report that, after 6 days of drying in front of a fan, I reassembled my CT26 and it fired right up! Of course, I don't know about long-term issues that will arise later (e.g. silt in the bearings) but for now it lives!

Thank you, Festool, for making high-quality products.

Did you contact Stu at Tools from Japan, or consider the Koyamaichi I recommended?

In Stu you are getting a recommendation from someone who is an expert on the subject, and you can trust you will get value for money (no matter how much you spend).

Festool Tool Problems / Re: TS55 REBQ - major issues when bevel cutting
« Last post by eddomak on Yesterday at 08:47 PM »
I have found using the 20 tooth blade to be much better than the 48 tooth on all counts, and the cut quality equitable, and superior on "rip" cuts.
How clean do you find the cuts on the lower count blade ?

On plywood I find no difference at all, as I generally sand the exposed edge a little anyway (especially when there are burn marks).

I was just watching a video released this week by Chris Salome (FourEyes) on YouTube where he did a bevel cut (albeit in solid timber) and complained about the same thing - saw struggling/cutting out, burn marks.
